The earliest fabric is the chancel, which dates from the early 13th century, while the nave dates from the 15th century. The west tower was rebuilt in 1711.The only Romanesque carving is a mutilated, probably late-12th century, Purbeck marble font bowl.


The DB does not mention this parish church.





It seems that the bowl was originally square since each of the straight faces of the bowl retain some form of decoration, albeit mutilated, while the intermediate faces are plain, as if the corners of a square have been cut off.
